A Spade Sometimes Isn't a Spade
Our favorite pattern in the show was the novelty four-leaf clover print made of four spades (the playing card suit). It looked fresh on the first look — a shirt-dress with matching head scarf and choker. Our favorite bags were the big totes made up of, that's right, spades.
The color of the season at Kate Spade was lilac. It showed up in shoes, dresses and as accents throughout. We particularly flipped for the over-the-knee boots on Lineisy Montero.
Casting Is Key
